I haven't driven my old A much in last year or so, and the ol' jalopy's got a few issues- tired motor, spitting oil, leaking tranny, loose bolts, and general abuse. Heck, I built this thing with used parts in my garage 6 years ago, with hand tools, and never looked back. I plan on taking the car back down to the frame and building it back up RIGHT over the winter. I don't feel the car is unsafe in terms of brakes or chassis, but there's good chance some ancillary part will give out, fall off, or stop functioning. What better way to begin the tear down than to try and kill it on a road trip? Baron von Mike and I are taking the roadster to Bonneville, leaving Saturday the 16th, and taking Hwy 50 out to Utah from the Bay Area. If you see us on the roadside, just make sure we're alive, and offer us some tools, eh?
